My first sample is all about textures. I ran the card front through an embossing folder. Next I heat embossed the flowers and leafy element from the Sketchy Doodle Flowers A4 sheet in gold on black card and coloured them in with colour pencils. Next I fussy cut and adhered the leaves down to the card front and popped up the flowers with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the Loving Sentiments A5 sheet, also heat embossed in gold.
For my second card, I decided to make a One Layer Card. Now that was a challenge for me! I started by heat embossing directly on to the card base and colouring in with pencils. I also heat embossed the greeting from the Birthday Words A5 set and it would have been a One Layer Card ... had I stopped there. At the last minute I added a fussy-cut gold-embossed leafy sprig to balance the sun burst.
Gold on black is quite a dramatic and elegant combo. Add to that heat embossing and colour pencils - the possibilities are endless ... and they work so well with these Sketchy Doodle Flowers.
